I do not understand how to improve my dogs potty habits. she pees on the floor and used to poop all at night when she has been out for more than a 1/2 hour. I do not understand why I have taken away her food at night but do not want to remove her water. does any one have any ideas. I am ready to get the pee pads they sell but I do not like that idea at all.

what time does she eat dinner??? My pups get fed right at bedtime so they go to sleep with full tummy's and don't have to poo till morning =) If say your feeding her at 5pm she'll have to poo before morning .If you feed her at 9 or 10 pm she'll more likely poo in the morning 4-5 hrs is a big digestive differance =) crating/confining her should help with the poddy. I usally crate mine the 1st year untill their reliable.
Good Luck.
I feed Chesney at night before bed also. I also crate her at night. I take her out to go potty right before she goes to bed and not long after she eats. 9 times outta 10 she poos but she always pees. Where does she sleep? A lot of times they will do this sort of thing out of separation anxiety. Chesney still does it if I leave her in the house for even just 15 mins sometimes. She is a glue dog..hehehe. But they tend to not go in their crates so I crate her at night and if I leave the house for extended periods of time. I know some people don't agree with crating because it seems mean but just think of it as her bedroom..lol. That's what I do! It's her own little space that is hers and only hers.
